A New Year….Only Slightly Delayed

Welcome to my first EVER blog!

I am very excited to be able to share my interest in clean and healthy living with you, the reader. It is in this space that I will be discussing everything from recipes to body products to gardening to, well, you get the idea.

My desire to be healthy has been with me since a very early age. I don’t remember a time when physical activity and eating healthy wasn’t a daily expectation for myself-not that I have always followed it, of course. Everything in moderation, right?

Anyway, my approach to healthy living took on a more encompassing view in 2011 when, seemingly out of the blue, I decided to research the effects of hair dying. I had been chemically coloring my hair for several years, and it occurred to me that though it sits directly on the scalp, has a rather nasty smell, and would cause my scalp to itch, I knew nothing of its less apparent effects. As it would turn out, there were many less apparent effects that I was unaware of that were occurring on a regular, if not daily, basis, and I simply needed to learn more. I would like to think I was channeling one of Socrates’ philosophies that my Dad had hung on the wall, “The unexamined life is not worth living.”

And so, once upon a time, my flight to a cleaner and healthier lifestyle began….
